    When you built this system, you did reformat the hard drive and re-install everything from scratch, didn't you?

    Also if you believe it to be Video dribers, you can run the system without any nVidia drivers, having removed them (and used Driver Cleaner) - you can simply use the build-in VGA driver.

    Sure it will be sluggish... but will enable you to prove (or disprove) that the graphics drivers are the cause.....
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    ok it looks like the ram was the problem, the brand new 60 quid ram out of the box somehow makes the system crash =.= should i return it? or is there anything that can make it work -.-

    Did it fail memtest?

    If you have two (or more) sticks, test them individually to identify the bad stick(s) and also try different slots just to make sure it's not that. Once you've identified bad memory, send it back for replacement. If it's bad, it's bad - nothing you can do about it.
